We value contributions from the community and regularly invite feedback on policies, strategies and projects.
The Council has endorsed a Communications and Engagement Policy, Framework and Strategy to make sure we are applying best practice principles, values and processes when communicating and engaging with the Kingborough community.
- The Communications and Engagement Policy aims to make sure all of our communications and engagement activities adhere to the values and objectives as set out within the Policy.
- The Communications and Engagement Framework provides Council officers with the methodology to develop effective communication and engagement strategies. It also seeks to make sure Council improves the evaluation and reporting mechanisms for each project.
- The Corporate Communications and Engagement Strategy is to provide an overview for the communications and engagement activities for the Kingborough Council for a 12 month period.
The Kingborough Community Consultative Forum meets every three months, where representatives from community organisations across Kingborough meet with Council Officers to discuss ideas and provide feedback on a range of projects.
We value the opportunity to gather information about what you want and to make collaborative, consultative decisions. Council now has an online community engagement platform, where all of Council’s online forums, polls and surveys will be published. Visit the Our Say page via the link below.
Current Engagement Opportunities
Silverwater Park Future
The Silverwater Park survey is now closed. We are reviewing the feedback and are continuing the engagement with students at the school. Once all the feedback has been received, we will be presenting the findings at a Council meeting (date to be confirmed). Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey and who visited staff at the Kingborough Council stall at previous markets and events.
Why would you want an aquatic centre in Kingston?
Kingborough Council has been given a grant from the Tasmanian Government to do a feasibility study for an aquatic centre or swimming pool in Kingborough. The idea is to locate it within the Kingborough Sports Precinct.
The swimming pool idea has been floating about for a number of years and now we need to make sure we understand why you want a pool and what the community needs are.
We need to know this information so we can assess viable and responsible options of how to develop and manage this sort of facility in the future.
Kingston Place Strategy
Place Score was engaged by Kingborough Council to work with the community, stakeholders and partners to develop an overarching strategy for the future of central Kingston. A Place Strategy is the final piece of work, which aims to present a shared vision for the future and how it can be achieved.
The final survey on the DRAFT strategy below is now closed and we are reviewing the feedback. A report will be presented to Council with the findings in April.
